Today I was pondering how similar this world-wide event is to adapting to living in a foreign land. Just like when I lived and taught in China, we have to learn a whole new way of doing almost everything. We have to wash our hands and use many precautions to avoid contamination or spreading the virus, and there we had to use great caution on eating foods or drinking water that hasn’t been boiled. A few key things I learned: flexibility and adaptability are crucial. A sense of adventure and sense of humor make life so much better than complaining or getting frustrated or down. God is giving us unbelievable opportunities to share His love and the gospel in a hurting world. Let’s make the most of the days He has ordained for us to live. We are alive for such a time as this.
